IAHCSMM is pleased to announce a new, one-of-a-kind reference for Central Sterile Supply Department professionals: The CSSD Dictionary and Reference Guide.

This comprehensive publication will serve as a valuable one-stop reference for all CSSD professionals. In addition to an A-Z guide of terminology that most CSSDs are exposed to in their departments (from basic equipment- and supply-related terms to management and technician verbiage and even surgical terms), the dictionary will also feature temperature and time conversion charts, a glossary of regulation- and standard-making government agencies and organizations, and a symbol directory to help CSSD staff gain a clearer understanding of manufacturer recommendations and processing requirements.

(For every 10 books ordered, an additional 1 book will automatically be included, free of charge).
